    FYI: Largest full-face helmet found!

    Just posted this over on the DH forum:


    Besides a 3-sigma gut, I also have a 3-sigma head (on the large side of the gaussian...), I'm talking about the boney parts, not just the multiple chins...

    Anyway, I've been searching for a fullface bicycle helmet for years, have had to use a motocross helmet. After years of trying on every FF helmet I came across, I finally plopped an XL '04 Specialized Hucker on the old mellon and it fits like a dream - it's huge! Even comes with a smaller and larger pad set, in case the installed pads don't fit quite right. Was $90 at Supergo. Only drawback is that it doesn't have many cooling vents. But the black/silver one is awesome looking.

    So for you fatheads out there, this is THE solution.

    I feel your pain

    I myself have a large melon, shaped like a football. My sister refered to me as "football head" as a kid. A good fitting helmet is hard to find. I found a good fitting helmet at my local dealer it was a Trek it only cost 40 dollars, but it's the best fitting helment I ever had. I heard on TV the other day that women find men with large heads attractive , no joke.

    XL. No pics, just stop by anyplace that carries Specialized FF helmets.
